Do you like my little tea cup planter?! Purchase for one whole pound, it sat around for a very long time in my house while I figured out what to do with it. After a post on the fabulous home of Lille Ting, I decided to use this planter with my embroidered Tilda pin cushion that I made after I saw the project in Sew Pretty Homestyle book.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on this “Undefined” stamp carving kit from Stampin’ up. I already have lots of erasers and tools for stamp carving but this box was a great way to get your hands on everything necessary without having to buy in bulk. If you want to try out stamp carving but not commit to a box of 30 erasers or spend lots on cutting tools then you should definitely use one of these kits.
I have an uncle who likes wood working so I was able to get my own little wooden blocks but I’ve lots of them! These come with a limited set of wooden blocks but there are enough for the amount of rubber that’s there for carving. The tools are really good and I love the designs that came with the kit, especially the little speech bubble! I tried carving the speech bubble but made a booboo and it’s just three lines now. haha. Start over! You can buy the kit here.
And now a lovely view of my desk! In my favourite mug! I don’t use this mug that often because I’m so terrified of breaking it. Do you guys like my little ceramic sewing reel?! It was a gift from Santa and I love it. It’s a little large for pens and pencils (tall I mean) but it’s perfect for my paint brushes and it’s beautiful. ^_^ That’s also my collection of greengate tins and suitcases. ^_^
